This year Centennial is extremely fortunate to have a partnership with a great organization called Playworks. Some of your students may have already talked to you about Coach Ashley, or Coach A as they call her. One of Coach A’s roles is to be out on the playground every day teaching students recess games in an effort to support our school community to build a safe recess environment where students can be engaged in age appropriate, structured play.

As a member of the Playworks community we were just informed of a super cool opportunity to possibly win $1000 worth of much needed recess equipment.

Please take a moment to fill out this quick online survey, the more surveys filled out for Centennial, the more times Centennial is entered in the competition.

In addition to the survey, Coach A will be hanging posters around the school playground. If parents tweet or Instagram a picture of the poster and our playground using the hashtag #win4recess, Centennial will get more entry credits for the contest.

The more entries we have, the better chance we have of getting more playground equipment for our crew.
